25% DISCOUNT! Yes, you read right. Tomorrow (25 Feb) is the birthday of S. Rajaratnam, Singapore’s first Foreign Minister, who also wrote our National Pledge. 
However, did you know that he also wrote several short stories and radio plays before he became a politician? 
Some of the stories were so good, they were selected for anthologies in the UK and USA and translated into several languages, including French and German!

When I think of S. Rajaratnam, I think of Joseph Goebbels who was one of Hitler’s closest associates and most devoted followers. One could say the same of the relationship between Rajaratnam and one Harry Lee.

Goebbels, like Rajaratnam, was known for his public speaking skills.

But his greatest skill was in the use of propoganda

began to take an interest in the use of propaganda to promote the party and its programme. After the Nazi Seizure of Power in 1933, Goebbels’ Propaganda Ministry quickly gained and exerted controlling supervision over the news media, arts, and information in Germany. He was particularly adept at using the relatively new media of radio and film for propaganda purposes.

Rajaratnam was also good in controlling the media and spinning for the PAP.

But Rajaratnam was no anti-Semite. And he was the side that won.
